Chia seeds are a superfood loaded with nutrients like omega-3, fiber, and antioxidants. These nutrition bombs are also high in protein, fiber, calcium, potassium, and vitamin B. A cool thing about chia seeds is when they are saturated, they absorb a whopping 10 times their weight in water and transform into a gel-like substance. If you want to control your appetite, have healthy brain function, healthy skin, hair nails then you want to integrate this superfood into your diet.
